Reading Paint Files

By Gary Palmer, University of Nevada

Paint files have become generic on the Macintosh as a way of transferring bit mapped type graphics information between applications. Several commercial programs have come out that can read and write MacPaint file formats, making support of this type of Macintosh object an important design consideration. FullPaint by Ann Arbor Softworks is one of the most popular MacPaint alternatives because it is the most faithful to the original design in simplicity and function, yet improves on the obvious limitations of MacPaint without introducing any new wrinkles or problems to get in the way. Thunderscan by Thunderware & Andy Hertzfeld opens, reads and writes paint files with the added feature that you can use Andy's wonderful "moving window" scroller to select any part or all of a paint drawing for alteration. As such, it is a useful paint editor. Paint Cutter by Silicon Beach Software has some important features including the ability to make large selections and rotate large selections of a paint diagram. This is especially useful in combination with Thunderscan drawings that must be rotated. SuperPaint also by Silicon Beach Software offers a "MacDraw-MacPaint" combo that can be very powerful in addition to reading and writing paint files. As a result of all this developer support for paint documents, the ability to read and display a paint type document could be an important design element in your application.

As figure 1 shows, our program this month illustrates how to open and read a MacPaint type document, displaying it in a window at 3/8's of it's normal size. Add this to a paint type program and you can expand to editing and any number of other quickdraw functions.

MacPaint documents are described in technical note number 86 released last August, and according to the note header, the note was written by Bill Atkinson in 1983! Figure 2 summarizes the format of the MacPaint document.

The beginning of a MacPaint file is a 512 byte header block, which contains the version number, pattern array, and empty space. The header matches the following record example:

MPHeader = RECORD
 version: LongInt;
 PatArray:  Array [1..39] of Pattern;
 Future:  PACKED ARRAY [1..204] OF SignedByte;
END;

Typically, the version number is zero, in which case the patterns are ignored and MacPaint uses the default patterns instead. Applications can ignore the header by skipping it when reading a document or by writing out 512 bytes of zero when writing a paint document. (Recall that a Pattern is 8 bytes so the PatArray is 38*8 = 304 bytes.)

Paint documents are a screen dump at 72 dots per inch, of the bit map, which represents a 576 pixel wide (72 bytes times 8 bits per byte) by 720 pixel tall array, thus covering an 8 by 10 inch document. Each line of 72 bytes, representing 576 pixels is shoved through the trap PackBits to output a single pixel line, until all 720 lines have been packed. Therefore, the maximum size of an unpacked bit map is 720 lines by 72 bytes per line or 51,840 bytes. With the PackBits routine, this compresses down to about 10,000 bytes normally.

Fig. 1 Our Paint Reader Program

Program Details

To read the file, we call the standard file routine to get a file name and reference number, then call FSOpen to open the file. We can skip the 512 byte header by positioning the file marker past the first 512 bytes with SetFPos. We determine the size of the file by calling GetEOF, and then subtracting the 512 header bytes to determine the number of bytes making up the bit map, which is what we want to read and display. We then use FSRead to read in the bit map into the buffer and close the file. (See figure 3 above for flowchart.)

To prepare the bit map for display, we have to unpack it. This can be done by calling UnPackBits in a loop, unpacking 72 bytes at a time until all the lines of the document (720) are done. The nice thing about MacPaint is that it doesn't try to do anything fancy with variable size files. All files have the same 720 lines to unpack. Sometimes simplicity is a great virtue! In our program, we just divide the bit map in two and call UnPackBits twice.

Fig. 2 Format of Paint File Data Fork

Once the bit map is unpacked, we can copy the bit map to an off-screen bit map we have allocated, and then to our window to display the document in a destination rectangle. By making the destination rectangle 3/8's the size of the document, we can nicely display the entire drawing at a reduced size. In our program, we have scaled everything to ScreenBits.bounds, so on a larger display, a bigger proportional picture would also be displayed. This is a good habit to get into in preparation for Macintosh II.

Our main program is fairly simple. We perform the standard init stuff and open a window. Then we begin our display loop where we continue to call standard file until the user clicks cancel. This is done by calling our procedure GetPaintImage, which in turn calls standard file, and then attempts to open the file and unpack the bit map, followed by DisplayPaintFile, which copies the off-screen bit map to our window. A simple event loop is used to allow a cmd-shift-3 to capture the window contents and save it to disk to help write this article! The real work is in our paint file manager unit, where the actual reading and displaying of the file takes place.

Standard File Dialog

Figure 4 shows our standard file dialog from which we get the name of the file. We call it with an allowed file type of PNTG so that we get all MacPaint type files. The standard file dialog fills in a Reply record from which we can extract the file name and reference number for the FSOpen call. After opening the file we call our ReadPaintFile routine to read in the packed bit map and return to us a pointer to the bit map. Using the pointer, we call UnpackBits twice to unpack and copy the bit map to our off-screen bit map from which we will copy the image to the window, as shown in figure 3.

Fig. 3 Program Flowchart

Debugging Aid

A useful feature when dealing with the file manager is our doMessage procedure. This little routine takes four string arguments and stuffs them into the low memory globals with ParamText trap. A simple dialog is displayed that reads the four low memory parameters and displays them in the dialog box. This is useful for a quick and dirty output device, both for the user, and for debugging. Since every file manager call returns an error code that must be checked, it can be a real pain while you are writing and testing code, to deal with a formal exception handler procedure. Our little dialog box lets you know what happened and where and by using NumToString, can be an easy way to find out the values of parameters in a hurry. Whenever you need some info, just stick in a doMessage() line in your code. Of course, this violates the resource manager thinking of Apple by putting human readable text in your program rather than in your resource fork! But, when you are done with development, a simple search on doMessage would find all the strings which could then be transferred to a string resource for the final product.

Fig. 4 Calling Standard File

Each time we get a file, our doMessage proc displays a dialog box showing how many bytes there are in the packed bit map. It also shows if the number of bytes is odd. MacPaint files will always return even, so the dialog in figure 5 is shown. But sometimes another program will return an odd number of bytes, in which case, the dialog in figure 6 is displayed. Our program will attempt to read any paint type file, and other error checking traps will catch any problem and return the user to the desktop.

Fig. 5 Paint file has even bytes

Fig. 6 Other files may have odd bytes

Combining this program with the C column this month and adding in Joel West's article on printing a few months back, you have the making of the next FullPaint application!
